Craigslist ads
I have a question regarding my craigslist ad that I have posted and continue to repost. Have any of you found the best section to post the ad? I have posted all of them in the services section under "farm and garden", "labor/move", and "household services". Have any of you found a section that gets you the most hits? Also, any particular tips on getting someone to latch onto your ad? Again, thanks for the prompt help!

Do you have any pictures of your work? How do customers contact you? Category is meaningless, unless you place it in a non landscapereachable category. In other-words "Home & Garden" is fine.

it doesnt matter. The ads will get flagged either way. On top of that I find the customers from there to be the biggest pita.

What makes some non landscaper reachable?

Do you mean what categories?

Yea, I was just wondering how certain categorizes might be seen as non-landscaper reachable?
